Acer upgrades its Swift and Aspire range
Acer has introduced refreshed models in its popular Swift ultra-portable notebook and Aspire all-in-one desktop ranges.
Acer refreshed models will all be powered by the latest 10th Gen Intel Core processors and Windows 10.
“10th Gen Intel Core processors redefine what’s possible in a modern laptop by bringing broad-scale AI to the PC for the first time, an all-new graphics architecture for a leap in performance with Iris Plus graphics, and integrated best-in-class connectivity with Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) and Thunderbolt 3,” said Chris Walker, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of Mobility Client Platforms in the Client Computing Group, Intel. “It has been a great collaboration between Intel and Acer to bring the performance and platform capability to life in the new, beautifully designed Swift laptops.”

The 14-inch Acer Swift 5 has been known to be the lightest in its class since its inception, with a chassis made from a perfectly balanced combination of magnesium-lithium and magnesium-aluminum alloys.
The latest generation weighs 990 grams with a new discrete NVIDIA GeForce MX250 graphics option, or even less with solely newly updated integrated Intel Iris Pro graphics while measuring just 14.95 mm thin. The screen features a three-side narrow bezel with a high screen-to-body ratio of 86.4%.

The stylish and lightweight Acer Swift 3 notebook has a 14-inch Full HD IPS screen, is available in steel gray and millennial pink, and weighs just 1.19 kg (2.62 lbs).
